I love this day. It comes every 4 years and because of this day, poor Frederic was only 5 instead of 21 when he wanted to leave the pirates for his true love. There was also a case Sherlock Holmes had to solve revolving around this date. Jimmy Dorsey and Dinah Shore were born on this day and as crazy as it may sound, it is an important date in the year!
Romance is rampant on this day. Or the equivalent of! In Greece it is considered unlucky to marry on this day (odd they didn't release the new 'Big Fat Greek Wedding' today). And in many countries it is ok for a woman to ask a man to marry them on the 29th of Feb. If the man refuses he is supposed to get her a dress, or give her money, or gloves! The latter is to hide the fact the lady doesn't have a ring.
Now, this short favorite month is completely over and we'll March into spring. Hooray for Spring!
